- Who are you, and what do you do?
I’m Graeme Oke. My job title is Coordinator, Research Advantage. I am a Research Librarian at La Trobe University in Melbourne Victoria. My prime role is to manage a team of Senior Research Advisors to support HDR students and research staff from the Arts Social Science and Commerce (ASSC) College. I also have a role in the support of Research Impact, Customised Searches, Research Data Management and I contribute to the publications data collection exercise. Additionally I am involved in the development of the Research Commons. I have been writing a little about the Viz Lab and the Research Commons during blogjune. I also love to ride a bicycle and have blogged about that too.
2. What hardware do you use?
I primarily use a work Dell Ultrabook running Windows 10. I use a hand me down S3 Samsung smart phone.
3. And what software?
Outlook for email. Word, Excel, Microsoft Onenote, Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, WordPress for blogjune, UNITE/sharepoint to access work stuff, I tend to use multiple browsers for different purposes Firefox, Chrome, Internet Explorer.
4. What would be your dream setup?
I think I would love to be able to work from home if I desired to. The commute to and from work I find draining. Think I am most productive in the early morning so would like to be able to just push myself early and then relax and go for a bike ride in the afternoon. At times I have applied and aspired to be further up the hierarchy but that doesn’t seem to have eventuated.
